LILIANA POROJAN, CRISTINA SAVENCU, SORIN POROJAN APPLICATIONS OF HEAT-PRESSED CERAMICS FOR SINGLE TOOTH RESTORATIONS
Currently, several methods have been used for fabricating all-ceramic restorations. Among them, heat-pressing technique was a well-established method utilizing lost-wax technique. The aim of the study was to evaluate the feasibility of application of dental heat pressing technique in processing dental ceramics and the marginal fit of obtained single tooth restorations. All the processing steps were developed to achieve different single tooth restorations. The staining technique was used. Heat-pressing technique used in the present study has been considered as easy processing, less time-consuming and with optimal marginal fit.
Key words: dental ceramic, heat pressing technique, marginal fit
